Daptiv Achieves Strong Growth, Fuelled by Record Customer Bookings, Retention and Key Product Advancements

PPM Software and Solutions Company Extends Market Leadership Position in 2013 by Expanding Global Business, Advancing Best in Class Product Capabilities and Bolstering Leadership Team

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Jan 21, 2014) - Daptiv, the on-demand leader in project portfolio management (PPM) software, today announced an impressive 21 percent year-over-year growth in new businesses during the fiscal year 2013. The company's success stems directly from key platform upgrades, international growth and a relentless focus on addressing the ever-evolving needs of customers. Daptiv continued to provide new, robust and customer-driven solution capabilities that translated to the company achieving its highest ever annual customer retention rate in 2013.

Daptiv continued to set the industry bar in various functional solution categories. For example, in a time when data vulnerability is a real and closely managed threat, Daptiv continued to strengthen its market leadership position in security. In addition to being the only ISO 27001, SOC2 and US/EU Safe Harbor certified SaaS-based PPM provider, Daptiv also maintains the highest level of customer data protection standards in the market. This includes ensuring data encryption during every phase of solution delivery, yet another security best practice established by Daptiv and now being replicated in the PPM SaaS market.

"Daptiv realized tremendous growth in 2013, with particularly strong performance in the fourth quarter to close the year," said John Baldwin, CEO at Daptiv. "Key product advancements drove expansion globally and our cloud solution unleashed enhanced productivity and profitability for our customers by bringing processes and conversations together in a single place. The fact that Daptiv's enterprise grade PPM solution is trusted by even the most security-conscious organizations has further solidified Daptiv's position as a leader in the SaaS-based PPM delivery market that's clearly achieved mainstream acceptance and adoption."
